2 china dolls

were bought at a thrift store for a cost of
$6.99 each. It is a good price besides the
little bit of wear & tear. When measured
up against my other dolls these were 7
inches high. I dont know how that escaped me.

The doll on the right is stuffed I guess with
(I dont know??) I dont know the age of either
of the dolls. Her apron is stitched with the
dress and the dress is cut crooked. All in all
she still was taken more care of than the other
doll.
The doll on the left was not made
very well. Her bloomers did not go
up to her waist. Even the arms were
proportioned wrong. The bonnet isnt
too bad so I might reuse that. Her dress
was also cut crooked & the deep purple
ribbon had ran onto the dress.
So I took apart the doll on the left.
I will reuse the cotton to wrap around
the pipe cleaners and throw away this
ugly body.
Look how bad the inside of the breast
plate is. I think that this doll has been
fixed many times. I dont know how I
am going to clean that mess out. And
there is some glue on her little leg. I
might have to buy some glue remover
for procelain. Still I think even with the
work that I have to do to fix her that
its still a good deal. I like having to
make my own.
